    April, glad you're back.. rest up.. BuddysMom... seriously.. a halloween quilt with no added black.. do you know what kind of challenge that is? well.. tough kitty you're getting some black.. it just won't be the predominant color. But it has to exist a LITTLE. Especially if I am successful at squishing a fat hairy spider onto it.

    Hi April, so glad you are home and now can relax and recover.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Questions...being as this is my first swap Am I to keep the extra fabric from the f8 to add to my stash, or am I supposed to send it back to the sender? Also, if I am inspired...is it O.K. to send back more than one block?

    thanks for your help

    tlambing - we were all new once. This is my first time around and I had the same questions!! I think I found the block I want to make with your floral - will play with it! I haven't gotten my F8 out to you yet - may just wait until I get your block done and send them together! I think you have enough to keep you busy now!

    I'll take 2 anytime tlambing, and your blocks are coming home tomorrow. I couldn't stop playing with your fabric today, it's really pretty. Also going home ctmhjenn's. If you want to peek they are in my sent album. Going home from diamonds is 1000projects and luv2sew. I have received everyone's in this group and they are now sewn and home or almost there or will be this next week. Just waiting for a few to come back. This has been great, everyone is getting them done and on there way. Hope both of you like your blocks that you will receive soon. Did you have your chocolate today?

    Wow, you gals don't go by the deadline of 4 months.... I have so much going on that I will not get them all out as fast as the rest of you. It is one at a time, but they will all get done. Ctmhjenn

    Is not a race.. hehe I did a bunch right away, and am slowing down now because some fabrics are not telling me what they want to be when they grow up.. or I have to learn a technique to create what they did tell me they wanted to be. Or i don't have the right fabric to go with them. But I have ideas for all but 1 fabric.. Now I also have a horrendous math class kicking my butt right now. In the last year of school I've gotten 7 A's and 1 B+ and it's really giving me panic attacks that my math class is currently sitting at 78%.. AACCCCKKK No where near an A.. granted it's a 15 week class but holy cripes. It drives me nuts not to have perfection. I feel like they threw us to the wolves. They were like.. oh here's 2 remedial math classes.. sweet.. I get this.. got A's... first week of this actual College Algebra class and BAM. Here's supposed to be a review chapter.. review.. yea right.. I had never heard of any of this stuff. Woulda been nice to be prepared. The textbooks are worthless, and I made the mistake of taking this one online so I don't even get teacher interaction. so it's eating a lot of my time to try to figure this math out. But I'm getting there. I need to pick it up though because I have a lot of other things I need to create for swaps in the next couple months.

    Right on this is not a race. Last race I was in I was given an escort in. Dead Last. Me and security detail has a wonderful talk as I finished the race. But I did finish! I love this swap but I have other projects at the same time that need my attention and I work full time. But I do not think everyone thinks that they will get their blocks in the first month, just along we get a few along the way makes it fun.

    I also at one point did school at night. Online classes are far more harder to get without that interaction and never getting to know how they grade. Good luck on that, Anastasia. Got to go to work now, Phannie

    The other day somone posted a thread on the board about not being able to sleep because she had fabrics and patterns running through her head. I have that problem sometimes too ... sometimes it's just mindless "brain can't stop" seeing of patterns that are not constructive in any way and just prevent me from sleeping, but other times I have an epiphony. Last night was one of them.

    Saturday I started working on one of your blocks (won't say which), struggled all day with the color combination, and finally came up with what I thought would work and finished the block Saturday night. Sunday morning I was about to fold it to prepare for mailing and I looked at it again and I just plain did not like the color choices I made. It was too washed out, not enough contrast ... blah. So again I dug around in my stash and went back to the first fabric I had originall chosen (and rejected), tore the block apart and re-made it with the different fabric. It was still kind of blah looking, lacking *something*. Not being 100% comfortable with it I left it sitting on my cutting table instead of getting it ready to mail.

    Laying in bed last night I had an epiphony!!

    Pretty excite, going to go home tonight and cut it out and audition my idea and see if that finally does what I want it to do!!!

    Don't you love those semi-conscious almost got to sleep but had an "aha!" moment?!?!?
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Just sometimes doghousemom, 'cause then it usually hits me at 3 a.m. , sleep no way, yup downstairs and the sewing machine is going. Hubby gets up and says "what the ???? time did you get up? just shakes his head and walks away because there's usually a smile on his face. And there is no rush, it's just me. Inbred deep from my mother I think, you know that saying don't put off...... and I figure I can't remember as good as I once could, so I'd either miss the deadline or forget where I put all the envelopes. See you younger ones can remember.
    Anastasia you're going to do just fine, I can tell!!! You're a worry wort too, don't you just hate it sometimes?
